Net::SMTP - invalid method raised when attempting to connect using STARTTLS
Simple attempt (in irb):
smtp = Net::SMTP.new('server', 587)
NoMethodError: undefined method
success?' for "200 dummy reply code":Stringcheck_response'
from /usr/local/rvm/rubies/ruby-2.0.0-p247/bin/irb:13:in `'
The problem is with the critical() method, the method returns the "dummy response" if there already was a pending error.
The fix is to replace the line of:
return '200 dummy reply code' if @error_occured
return Response.parse('200 dummy reply code') if @error_occured
Alternatively, one can have a "canned" dummy response instance, but that may be unnecessary considering this only happens in error path.
